(SportsNetwork. Mason Rudolph Jersey .com) - The Cincinnati Bengals have become experts at offensive storm-weathering. Their run game has collectively managed only 3.1 yards per carry over the last two games, with leading rusher Giovani Bernard gaining just 62 yards on 23 attempts. Meanwhile, No. 1 wide receiver A.J. Green has missed three consecutive games - and is questionable this week - with a toe injury. His prospects for Sunday against Jacksonville will depend on how much practice work he can handle. But amid the adversity, some jewels have been uncovered. The Bengals have seen No. 2 man Mohamed Sanu pick up the aerial slack in Greens absence, catching 18 balls for 299 yards while serving as quarterback Andy Daltons main target. He caught five passes for 125 yards last week against Baltimore, in a 27-24 win that ended 0-2-1 streak since a Week 4 bye. Mos been playing great, Dalton said. I have a lot of confidence in him, and he has a lot of confidence in himself that hes going to make plays. Dalton hasnt had a touchdown pass since the 37-37 tie with Carolina in Week 6, but hes got a chance to have both Sanu and Green in the lineup together against the Jaguars for the first time since Oct. 5. Its a prospect thats got Sanu sounding confident. Now its going to be that theyre going to have to play us straight-up, he said. They cant double-cover any one of us. Theyre going to have to play man-to-man. Thats what we want. It doesnt help Jacksonvilles cause that starting cornerback Alan Ball wont be available after he was placed on season-ending injured reserve. The Jaguars signed Tommie Campbell, who played 37 games with Tennessee from 2011 to 2013, as a roster-filler. Linebacker Paul Posluszny was lost for the season with a torn chest muscle a week earlier, and defensive end Andre Branch is out for several weeks with a groin injury. Jacksonville is winless in its last five road games with an average deficit of more than 17 points, while Cincinnati is 12-0-1 in its last 13 regular-season games at Paul Brown Stadium. We have to come back and truly attack these things, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said, because we cant continue in this fashion. The Jaguars have scored 14.8 points per game through seven games - worst in the NFL - while their weekly average of 306.6 yards per week is better than just two teams, winless Oakland and one-win Tampa Bay. Theyve turned the ball over 18 times to tie the one-win New York Jets for the leagues worst mark and the resulting minus-10 turnover differential is 31st among 32 teams. Cincinnati is plus-5 in that statistic, tied for sixth in the league. The quarterbacking era heralded by first-round rookie Blake Bortles has been more miss than hit, with the youngster tossing 12 interceptions in five-plus games since he took over for veteran Chad Henne. Two of the interceptions - and a lost fumble - came in a 27-13 defeat last week against Miami. Four of the interceptions have been brought back for touchdowns. Im not going to say Im mad at myself, because thats not really going to help anything, Bortles said. Nobody cares, and its not going to help me do anything. Youve just got to learn from it. Youve got to go figure it out, start watching film and find out what you can do to try to be better. On the plus side, Bortles may have a new gem in his arsenal, too. Former University of Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson has run for 127 and 108 yards in his last two games, catapulting him to the top spot among Jacksonvilles rushers in 2014 and becoming the first Jaguar to run for 100- plus in two straight games since Maurice Jones-Drew three years ago. Its nice to see the running game getting better, guard Brandon Linder said. Hes a talented athlete and a great team player. He brings it on every play and is very confident in the way he runs. Thats Denard. He makes things happen. WHAT TO WATCH FOR Two if by Air Presuming Green finds his way to the field on Sunday, itll create a matchup for he and red-hot teammate Sanu against the Jaguars cornerback tandem - minus the injured Ball - of Demetrius McCray and Dwayne Gratz. Their most recent test came last week against Miami, whose top threat, Mike Wallace, was limited to two catches and no other target had more than three. A Developing Situation The Jaguars drafted Robinson as a wide receiver after he was a quarterback with the Wolverines, but hes clearly found a niche as a runner. Cincinnati hasnt exactly been a collective run-stopping machine either, allowing at least 107 yards on the ground for five straight games after its first two foes in 2014 - Baltimore and Atlanta - accounted for 94 and 97, respectively. OVERALL ANALYSIS Robinsons a nice little story and the Bengals havent reached the level theyd presumably attained after going 3-0 in the seasons early stages, but its simply hard to imagine the Jaguars winning here. They dont travel well, they dont score much and their defense is inconveniently beaten up on the way to a visit to face a team thats got a number of potential difference-makers on offense.

"It just seemed to me there were a lot of phone calls, a lot of talking, people interested, but nothing really happened," Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray said. Aside from Ryan Kesler getting dealt before proceedings got underway and then James Neal a few hours later, the weekend passed without much major action. One small trade -- the Calgary Flames getting Brandon Bollig from the Chicago Blackhawks for a third-round pick -- looked like a preview of many more to come as cap-strapped teams try to get under the US$69 million ceiling set for next season. "Its a puzzle to put together and try to make all the numbers work," Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman said Saturday. "Thats clearly the biggest factor youre faced with when you have salary cap being what it is. Youre going to have some tough decisions. Were not the only team thats in that position. There will be other teams that face the same things." Without naming names, Bowman was describing the plight of the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers, along with his Blackhawks, who almost certainly have to make sacrifices just to be cap-compliant. In the Bruins case, it might mean saying goodbye to Jarome Iginla, a 61-point player and a major piece of their Presidents Trophy-winning season. "If we cant sign Jarome, were going to find a good player at that position," Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said Friday night. "We feel all our young guys and our current players are going to get better." Its unclear what else the Bruins might have to do with forwards Reilly Smith, Jordan Caron and Justin Florek and defenceman Torrey Krug and Matt Bartkowski needing new deals as restricted free agents. According to CapGeek, Boston has just over $1.6 million to spend. The Flyers, technically over the cap by a couple hundred thousand dollars, have some room with defenceman Chris Pronger bound for long-term injured reserve. But theyre still reportedly shopping Vincent Lecavalier to rid themselves of at least part of his $4.5 million cap hit for the next four seasons. Chicago managed to part with Bolligs $1.25-million cap hit but might have to clear more salary to fiill out the roster. Jon Bostic Steelers Jersey. Enter the likes of the Flames, Edmonton Oilers and Buffalo Sabres, teams with salary-cap space to take on salary. Oilers GM Craig MacTavish knows players wont be given away, but talent should be available. "Were in a pretty enviable position to be able to take on some of those contracts," MacTavish said Friday night. "Those are really the style of deals that weve looked to make over the last little while where we give up a few assets, take the contract and the cap space, so well be trying to do some of that." That was part of what went into the Flames trading for Bollig, who just signed a contract extension in March. When the cap was set at $69 million, it was at least $1 million, if not more, less than GMs were hoping for. "Weve been looking at situations with the cap where people that may have difficulty or be in a situation where they had to move money," Flames GM Brad Treliving said. Sabres GM Tim Murray implied that hed be willing to accept expensive contracts, but only if he gets an asset like a draft pick in return. "I tried to make a big trade today, a unique trade," Murray said Saturday. "I said, We got to do like the NBA. So I went to a team and said, You trade me your first pick from yesterday. He didnt want to be the first guy to do that. So Im not sure I did, either. But I thought it was a good idea." There could be a market for those NBA-style deals if GMs determine the cap space gained is worth it. More likely, teams up against the $69 million limit will be getting partial value on current players to clear room to manoeuvre when unrestricted free agency opens Tuesday. Plenty of money will get handed out then, and the teams that dont have the space to do it will be forced to rely on younger players to fill the void. Bowman, who has gone through this during two Stanley Cup runs, called it just the continuation of the development cycle. "Its a constant process of finding guys who will be able to fill those roles," he said. "Its a never-ending game. Thats the state of the game today. But you have to find players, whether theyre free agents or like today draft picks and work with making it to the point where they can be NHL contributors."
